Locking the edit option for posts

Post by TheMark09 on November 10th 2008, 3:47 am

Lets say somebody says something bad or something and a staff member does not want them to change it back.
Here's an example.

Person: This forum sucks!!!!

Then the admin changes the post to...

Person: Post deleted by administrator

Or something like that. Then down below in the OPTIONS section it says all that stuff like Disable HTML and stuff
there should be another called

Lock Post
meaning locking the edit feature Smile

I hope this suggestion goes through!

No I did that because I didn't actually want to put something bad such as bad words or bad videos/games...

Having a poll with options such as "oh yeah" and "yes" isn't really wise. That's the same choice with different wording.

By the way, I responded to your original topic on this matter.

Also, locking a single post seems kind of worthless. It's not like they couldn't just post the same thing again in a new post or a new thread.

I have read your posts in the other thread as well.
I don't see a reason for such a thing. Hence i vote No.
